5. he works for the gov't...
he is a "citizen", actually has it pretty good compared to many, but not compared to the ELITE, those that really run things.

His job is to erase any public record of any sort that the gov't doesn't like, and replace it with a "new" story that attempts to cover the holes left by the old story. When a stor is destroyed, it goes down the memory hole, a tube that feeds into an incinerator.
